a district that has an enormous amount of agriculture from san antonio, texas all the way to el paso texas is the idea that farmers and ranchers, food producers, their funds to guarantee they can stay in business raising their crops and raising their livestock were not secure the way they should have been secured. yet what we had, as chairman neugebauer said his state agencies the power of the world to go out and regulate mf global and refuse to do so simply because of the aura of a previous politician that came into this business and really did not show any kind of knowledge or ability to guide a company like mf global that was sick once i utility -- quantify utility and ensure that funds of the guarantees that they could stay another season or another planting season, but gave them a free pass and gave them more and more a rodeo for customers money. i'm glad that this report points out all of those defects because they need to start focusing on what is really wrong and be not afraid of what it is we discover in how our regulatory agencies function for the well-being of our economy, for t

the fiscal cliff. here's a brief el strags of what we're talking about. the way things stand now an across the board spending cut is scheduled to hit every federal agency after december 31st. if congress does nothing before then, the cuts take effect no matter how badly the spending is needed. no matter how much it hurts, no matter who loses his or her job. at the same time everyone in the country gets hit with an across the board tax increase after the first of the year. you'll be paying more to the federal government no matter how much it hurts unless congress figures out how to stop it before december 31st. let's bring in our senior congressional correspondent dana bash. dana, this is big-time. this is a crucial issue that they have to resolve over the next, what, november and december. >> exactly. and the leader in the house and the leader in the senate wasted no time to come out and try to lay down markers. if you listen to the tone of both harry reid and house speaker john boehner each trying to sound as conciliatory and open to compromise as they can. watch what i'm talking about. >

in both directions. what happened in the state legislatures? you can see some big wave ele ctions like in 2010. the early members saw a move in the democratic direction -- numbers saw a move in the democratic direction. if you look at the blue states, there was some movement in the but thereirection was also some moves in the republican direction. republicans picked up legislature in arkansas, west virginia, alaska. both parts of the country pushing in different directions. i think the election is also something of a deepening of polarization. 1993 or 1992, there were 19 democrats who helped republican seats. that number has been declining and declining. there were also some republicans who used to hold seats for democrats for president. before this election, we were down to nine democrats and two republicans who met that definition them tha. in a way, the realignment continues. republicans are sitting in republican seats even though the numbers did not change dramatically in the house. there is a lot of talk about demographics and i am sure we are going to hear that on the panel. i th
